Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reached a major milestone as Manchester United manager last weekend, although his team failed to give him a day to remember.
Last Sunday marked the Norwegian’s 100th game in charge of the Red Devils, who he took over in December 2018.
Solskjaer’s centurion ended on a sour note as his troops suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of their top-four rivals Arsenal.
Shortly after the Norwegian’s 100th game in charge of United was in the books, fans started dissecting and comparing his record at Old Trafford.
Invariably, Solskjaer’s record was compared to that of his opposite number at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp.
“Long may Ole be at the wheel,” one Reds fan tweeted. “Lol.”
Another sarcastically said: “Ole is a world-class manager, definitely potentially better than Klopp and nothing but a 10 year contract would be doing him justice.”
“Is right fellas!” a fan of the Merseysiders tweeted. “Give him a new contract he’s gonna outdo Klopp’s legacy in no time.”
One fan said: “The stats certainly compare. I really doubt the squads they inherited do though. But you are right. Keep him for 5 years and see for definite.”
Some of the Anfield faithful accepted Solskjaer’s record was better than Klopp’s, with one fan tweeting: “You’ll hear no Liverpool fan challenge this.”
The majority of Kopites, however, took aim at the under-fire United boss.
“Give him a lifetime contract hand Ole gonna be the new Klopp,” one of the Anfield faithful tweeted sarcastically.
Another said: “Great stat and yes Ole deserves at least 100 more games #OleIn.”
Manchester United will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, travelling to Merseyside to take on Everton. Liverpool, meanwhile, will travel to the Etihad on Sunday to take on their Premier League title rivals Manchester City.
